- Do you have to do it both ways?(2 votes)
- is there an easier way to add?(1 vote)
- Using a number line might help. The problem with that is when you get to bigger numbers you'll be counting forever. Adding gets easier the more you do it. Doing a few problems on your own until you get it down would help immensely.(2 votes)

- how do you add the digits? Isn't it sometimes hard doing it mentally?(1 vote)
- it is very simple doing it mentally.for ex. 30 + 50 = 80 we just have to add 5 to the tens place(2 votes)

So we need to figure out
what 46 plus 43 is. Let me write it down again
and I'll write it like this: 46 plus 43. What we do here is we just first
look at the ones place. We literally have 6 ones plus 3
ones, or you could say 6 and 3, and 6 plus 3 is just 9. 6 plus 3 is 9, so
we have 9 ones. And then you go to the tens
place, and there's two ways to think about it. You could view this as 4 plus
4 is equal to 8, but really, the reality of what we're doing
since we're operating in the tens place, this is really
40 plus 40 is equal to 80. And we could do the same
problem expanded out. This is the same thing
as 40 plus 6. We've seen this before, right? That's what 46 is. And then 43 is the same
thing as 40 plus 3. We've expanded these
out before. And so when you add them,
when you add a 6 plus a 3, you get a 9. When you add a 40 plus
a 40, you get an 80. So you get 80 plus
9, which is 89. And the whole reason why I did
this is I wanted to show you that when you're adding 4's in
the tens place, you're really adding 40's. The fact that it's in the tens
place represents-- or the fact that the 4 is in the tens
place shows that it represents 40. The fact that the 8's there
shows that it represents 80.
